Wow Virginia state parks are all $30-35 for water & electric plus add on fees like a $5 reservation fee and after much outcry the $5 per dog fee was lifted...... It would cost us $45 for the first night at a Virginia State Park but it is down to $40 for the first night now ......... NC sounds like a bargain but we can still stay at Mayberry for $30 a night with the GoodSam discount & have full hookups and level sites. So we drive right by the local outdated local Virginia State Park. where they finally updated the 50 plus year old bathhouse..... their horse sites are nice though but not at all level.......

Odd, one might think the ocean attraction enough.

The big 3 myrtle beach campgrounds have water parks and now all three will have lazy rivers. Can you believe it was one of the reasons we didn't stay there last year. My wife loves floating on a lazy river. We stayed at Lakewood and had a blast. Going back again this year.

Speaking of $100/night, just booked lake George rv park at $98 plus $9 for every child over 12. I got one of those so I'm at $107/night.

Hey now... That will be enough of giving out the secret. Stayed there for the first time over Halloween, and promptly added a week next summer. Love the new dog parks they added.
Another option is the Jonestown KOA that you pass to get to Twin Grove. Very small campground but very friendly owners and the creek sites are great.

That sweet taste in my mouth soured a bit as i found the 2016 fees.
Full hook-up sites during the week went up $19/night... to $89/night.
Weekend fees went up $24/night... to $99/night!
They have also now added a holiday rate... only $109/night.
Hershey Park is nice, but it ain't Disney.
For those who haven't been to the campground, these are tight pull-through sites. If you're not in the pull-through section, you will be on the hill, and/or next to an active train that runs every 45-minutes or so, all day, all night.

The story i heard last summer (from a campground employee) is that the previous owners (when it was Hershey Highmeadow Campground) sold to Hershey Corp. many years ago, with the stipulation that they continued to manage the campground until they decided to retire. From what i gather, that happened in late 2014/early 2015, and site fees went up slightly last year. So, this would be the first year Hershey Corp. had complete control over price increases.
We used to love this campground... clean, friendly, a little pricey, but still affordable. Now, i would recommend finding one of the other 3 or 4 nice campgrounds in the area at about half the price.


Hershey KOA is right down the road, quieter and cheaper...10 minutes from the park. A much better option for my family.

Whoops! Fat thumbs. Myrtle Beach campgrounds are very reasonably priced but you need to go Jan-Mar. We were ocean front at Ocean Lakes for a week in Jan this year for $33/night.
